Summer is full of fun, and though more sun means more fun, it can be a challenge for your hair. The hot, humid weather can dry out your ends, damage colored hair, or even burn your scalp! With all the pool parties, UV rays, and humidity coming up, there are some tips for you to protect your hair from excessive tangling and damage. Make sure you’re prepared with the right tools and routines to get your hair ready for the summer!

Staying Clean in the Heat: Oil Control
One of the most common problems we will face during the hot summer months is sweating, thus causing those oily, greasy roots we all loathe so much. Dry shampoo can help but it can also leads to product buildup and, in severe cases, inflammation.
Excellent protection against sun damage is to apply liberally Iles Formula Finishing Serum or the Curl Revive Serum. Both have UV and humidity protection. Perfect to stop frizz and protect your colors from fading. Apply and if you have lenght, tie your hair up in a top knot with ends tucked inside, to create even further protection from UV exposure.
Our Finishing Serum and Curl Revive can help you block out those damaging UV rays and prevent your color from fading. Wash your hair with our shampoo. If your hair is long, color-treated, or dry in any way also use the Iles Conditioner. Then, apply the serum of your choice to wet or dry locks which will not only help maintain your hair’s fresh, vibrant color but also extend its life, leaving you with shiny, gorgeous, protected hair.

Do you know the Iles Formula Signature Collection ?
This Pack contains our award-winning Signature Haute Performance Shampoo, Conditioner, Finishing Serum, and Distribution Comb.
The Iles Shampoo is precisely balanced at PH 5.5 to 6.5 which ensures a perfect clean scalp to prevent excessive oil production and, at the same time, a nurture wash for the strands and revitalizing the hair follicles to promote healthy hair growth. When you wash your hair, avoid using your nails or creating unnecessary friction on the strands, as aggressive scrubbing can irritate your scalp and cause it to produce more oils.
The conditioner is our jewel and repairs instantly all hair types and the Serum is the hair’s protector.
Iles Formula Spa Pack as your Go-To Salt, Sun and Sand: Deep Condition
Jumping into the pool or ocean is definitely a go-to option on a hot summer day. The only problem is your hair will need to pay the price. Chlorine and saltwater are well-known culprits—guilty of causing extra dry, brittle hair and messing with hair color.
We created the Iles Formula Spa Pack especially for Summer Travel featuring our Hair Mask. On saying that this pack is also beneficial for extremely cold climates like mountain trips where the harsh cold can be as harmful as extreme heat can be to hair.
On top of properly rinsing your hair immediately after stepping out of the pool or ocean, some of the best ways to keep your hair tangle-free is through deep conditioner. Our Signature Haute Perfomance Conditioner contains extra moisturizers that repair instantly the hair shaft without any excess of build-up that coat the hair shaft, like protein or keratin that in fact can have an opposite effect and eventually cause breakage.
UV Protection: Lock in Moisture
About 10 to 13 percent of hair is made up of water, that’s why keeping our hair loaded with moisture becomes vital in summer. The sun is our best friend but, quite possibly, also our worst enemy. Not only does it burn our skin, but it can also cause severe damage to our hair, especially those with color-treated strands.
Avoid Heat: Anti-Frizz
If there is one thing we all hate about summer, it must be frizz. Although the humidity makes it uncontrollable, it is possible to tame your unwanted flyways and to create the appearance of a sleek, smooth mane by keeping your strands well hydrated. Our Haute Performance Hair Mask helps provide a daily dose of hydration, while also forming a protective barrier around your strands to help your hair lock moisture and block out the damage that causes frizz. The most important thing is that you do this regularly, we suggest once a week or once per month, depending on how often you expose your hair to the heat and water.
Between the sun, sea, and sand, our hair in the summer gets a pretty rough deal. Yet getting healthy hair and maintaining it in the summer couldn’t be easier with Iles Formula.
